ALLEN, TEXAS — WatchGuard Video, a manufacturer of law enforcement video systems, will be building its new corporate headquarters in Allen, accommodating up to 700 employees. The build-to-suit project will be completed in two phases for a total of 200,000 square feet of office space and a corporate investment of $46 million. WatchGuard’s new corporate headquarters will be located on 12 acres at the intersection of Exchange and Andrews parkways near Cabela’s and Topgolf, just east of Central Expressway. The first phase of the two-story, 140,000-square-foot office facility is expected to cost $36 million and will open at the end of 2017. The company’s second phase, set for a 2022 completion, will add another 60,000 square feet of space and is expected to require an additional $10 million investment. The company expects to move between 280 and 300 employees into the new office, with a total capacity of around 500 employees before further expansion is necessary. The facility will include open group areas for collaborating, training rooms, an outdoor recreation space, indoor racquetball court, gym, health clinic and a “customer experience room” that allows demonstrations of the company’s products.
